It's Fall Y'all!

Who would have thought that I would have less time to blog now that I am a stay at home Mom, than I did when I was working? It is crazy how busy this fall has been.

Ben is loving pre school.  He does not have a lot of legible words when I ask him about his day, but he sure has a long story to tell me.  He loves singing songs especially when they have signs or actions included with them. He seems to listen and follow directions pretty well when I am not around, however, when I am there, the acts like a wild man.

Noah is in 4th grade and is enjoying football.  This year he is the quarterback for his team.  He and his good buddy Drake had a sweet pass for a touchdown at the first game.  They beat Syracuse 14 to 8.

John is in Jr High this year and is also playing football.  He is the center for his team again.  They have had 2 wins so far this year, and both wins have been by 3 or 4 touchdowns.  Apparently the Jr high team last year did not have as much luck, so it has been fun to watch them doing good.

Ben enjoys cheering for his brothers.  Last Friday night they invited the Youth League players to the high school football game, where they announced the players and coaches, and they got to run on the field at half time.  It was a cold, damp night, but Ben was layered up.  He enjoyed the game and would take his hands out from under the blanket to clap.  Unfortunately, the weather did not agree with him as the next day he woke up with breathing issues.  We went to the Dr on Monday and he is taking a 3 day course of steroids and a 10 day course of antibiotics.  He seems to be doing much better now.  Hopefully this will not become a repeating pattern of sickness again this winter.
